Explanation

The recent study found that mass communications had negligible effects on the public. Since the recent study’s findings are contrary to those of earlier ones, the earlier studies must have found that the influence of mass communications was significant; thus, the blank must be filled with a word that indicates that the public is swayed by such communications. Of the choices, only “susceptible to” does this. Two of the other choices, “unaware of” and “unimpressed by,” indicate the opposite. “Scornful of” also indicates some resistance to mass communications, as does
“coping with,” so those are incorrect as well. Thus the correct answer is susceptible to (Choice C).
